Cannot change folder permission WinServer 2003

    Question

  • I can't make changes to the folder security because the only account with access (Administrator) does not the "change permissions" permission.

    As you can logon the administrator account, go to Advanced button of Security tab, then go to Ownership tab, chagne the ownership to Administrator first, click OK to quit, and try to set permission again.

  • If you need to take ownership of a bunch of files and folders, use the
    takeown command with the /R option to recurse. From the command prompt,
     
    takeown /?
     
    for more details. You will likely need someone who is part of the local
    administrators group on the server or someone who has specifically been
    granted the "Take ownership of files or other objects" permission in
    User Rights Assignment of the GPO or the local security policy.

  • If you are logged in as Administrator you should be able to take ownership of the folder and after that you should be able to give yourself (Administrator) full access to the folder.
